All You Need to Know About the Revamped Samsung Galaxy A Series
Samsung recently changed the nomenclature of its A series. What used to be single digit numbers representing the phone’s position in the hierarchy of a series has been replaced with multiples of ten.
The company used to have multiple series in its midrange segment but the company has decided to simplify the whole thing change its premium midrange A series into its an upper-tier midrange series, merging the J series of the phone into the new lineup. Meanwhile, the M series takes the mantle for the entry-level and low-tier midrange phones.
For those who were still confused with the change in the naming scheme, ProPakistani has brought you a list and some basic information about the new models.
The Galaxy A10 belongs in the bottom-end of the spectrum in the A series. While old users might expect A10 to be better than A9, that is not the case. The lineup has been completely revamped and the A10 is an entry level smartphone which is aimed at users who don’t want much out of a phone and except normal non-intensive tasks.
The display is fairly big and has an HD+ screen resolution. The 3400mAh battery capacity is easily more than enough to keep the phone going for long periods of time under heavy usage. It’s also one of the few in the series not to have an AMOLED display and the only one without a fingerprint sensor.
The Galaxy A20 is the only phone in the series that offers two different variants – the standard A20, and the A20e. The A20e is the weaker model out of the two, offering a smaller screen size and lesser battery. Unlike its superior sibling, the A20e doesn’t have an AMOLED display, but the cheaper price tag makes up for its absence. All the rest of the specifications are the same.
At first glance, the A30 and the A20 appear to be completely identical – sporting the same form factor, dimensions and even the same plastic body.
The two differ when it comes to specifications. The A30 brings some subtle upgrades over the A20, featuring a higher screen resolution (FHD), more RAM and more storage. So it’s no surprise the two also come with almost the same price tag.
The Galaxy A50 is positioned between the low-end spectrum of As with less powerful specs but of course a much affordable price tag compared to the premium ones.
The plus side on this one would be the fairly decent battery capacity of 4000mAh and a gaming friendly Exynos 9610 chipset. The camera does a decent job during the day but you’ll be needing a third party app for 4K recording.
Unlike its higher-end siblings down the line, the Galaxy A60 falls more on the low-tier midrange side. The Snapdragon 675 chipset makes it all the more evident. The fact that there’s no AMOLED display or a 3.5mm headphone jack is a little disappointing, but at least you get some beefy storage numbers and a 4k capable camera in a modest price range.
Just like all the rest of the phones in the series, the A60 also comes with Android Pie pre-installed with a clean One UI on top.
The Galaxy A70 has one of the biggest AMOLED screens out there with an affordable price tag, so if you’ve got a thing for sizable displays, then the A70 should be your go-to phone.
One other unique thing that it offers is its hefty 4500mAh battery. This much battery capacity is rare when it comes to midrangers, but that’s not it. It is also capable of up to 25W fast charging courtesy of USB-PD technology. With that much battery capacity, the phone is easily bound to last through at least 2 days of use.
The Galaxy A80 is the latest phone in the series and also the most unique one in the line. It is the only phone in the line featuring a full-screen display, which is made possible thanks to a nifty camera mechanism that pops up and rotates so the same cameras serve double duty, front and back.
Specifications wise, the A80 is exceedingly close to modern day flagship devices with the Snapdragon 730 being the main highlight along with some hefty amounts of storage and RAM capacity.
